The climate provisions of the Inflation Reduction Act will reduce U.S. carbon pollution by 1.15 billion metric tons by 2030, according to a DOE analysis released Thursday. Those reductions will bring U.S. 2030 emissions to about 40% below 2005 levels, still insufficient to meet the country’s pledge to cut carbon pollution by 50-52% by that point. The DOE analysis is largely consistent with earlier estimates by the Rhodium Group and Climate Action Tracker. (AP, Courthouse News)
